DOCTORS in Australia are developing the country’s first SADS registry after recent incidents of healthy young people dying from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, or Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), is an “umbrella term to describe unexpected deaths in young people” and this ‘mysterious’ syndrome is said to have left doctors in Australia searching for more answers.

This has led doctors at Melbourne’s Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute to create the country’s first SADS registry which they hope to roll out across the country in order to gain more information about this sudden death phenomenon.

“In our registry, there are approximately 750 cases per year of people aged under 50 in Victoria suddenly having their heart stop (a cardiac arrest),” a spokeswoman said.

“Of these, approximately 100 young people per year will have no cause found even after extensive investigations such as a full autopsy (the SADS phenomenon).”

According to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), SADS usually occurs in healthy adults under 40 and the term is used when a post-mortem can find no obvious cause of death.

As reported by, cardiologist and researcher Dr Elizabeth Paratz said Melbourne’s Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute registry: “[allows you to see] people who have had the cardiac arrest with no cause was found on the back end.”

Dr Paratz said that “the majority of these SADS events, 90 per cent, occur outside the hospital – the person doesn’t make it – so it’s actually ambulance staff and forensics caring for the bulk of these patients.”

She added: “I think even doctors underestimate [SADS]. We only see the 10 per cent who survive and make it to hospital. We only see the tip of the iceberg ourselves.”

“If someone has a heart attack and you do an autopsy you might see a big clot, that’s a positive finding, but when someone’s had one of these SADS events, the heart is pristine,” she said.

“It’s really hard to know what to do.”

SADS Foundation, a US-based patient and family support program for those dealing with genetic conditions that cause sudden cardiac death in the young or who have lost a loved one to sudden unexplained death, said that “SADS conditions occur because the electrical system of the heart is not working properly, so that the heart beats with an abnormal rhythm.”

However, “these conditions can be treated and deaths can be prevented,” the foundation said.

The foundation added that SADS deaths in children, teens or young adults could be because of a family history of a SADS diagnosis or sudden unexplained death of a family member, fainting or seizure during exercise, or when excited or startled.

They also said that over half of the 4,000 annual SADS deaths in the country, within the aforementioned age ranges, have followed one of these warning signs.

As noted by the foundation, SADS events are not just confined to Australia or to adults, with Euro Weekly News reporting some of the following incidents which may have been related to Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome:

On Monday, May 30, Aidan Kaminska, a star lacrosse player at the University of Massachusetts, died suddenly at the age of 19.

On May 28, Piata Tauwhare, a newlywed bride, 30, originally from New Zealand, was found dead in a tanning cubicle, in Swansea, South Wales.

On Sunday, May 15, former Swansea defender Mark Davies died suddenly aged 49 after collapsing on the pitch during a Wales Veterans’ Cup final.

On Thursday, May 5, a man died suddenly on a Jet2 flight from Spain’s Malaga to Glasgow.

The flight had to be diverted to Nantes Atlantique Airport in France due to the customer requiring urgent medical attention, however, it was later revealed that the man had died.

On Tuesday, May 3, popular businessman Lorenzo Ortego, director of the Vital Suites – Residence, Health & Spa, from Gran Canaria died unexpectedly.

In the UK on Tuesday, May 3, a sailor during Finn Masters Race at Keyhaven Yacht Club in Milford on Sea, Lymington died suddenly leading to a police investigation.

On March 9, Commonwealth Games cyclist John Paul – who represented Scotland at Glasgow 2014 – died suddenly aged 28.

On Sunday, April 3, a 13-year-old footballer from Cadiz in Spain’s Andalucia died suddenly.

Prior to that, on March 28, another 13-year-old passed away on the Costa del Sol.

The young teenage boy was playing in the playground with the rest of his classmates at the Sierra de Mijas Secondary Education Institute, located in the province of Malaga when he allegedly fainted without prior warning and died at the scene.

Dr Paratz stated that scientists were still unable to determine “what genes cause [SADS]” and urged people to get checked, even if they are fit and healthy.

“The best advice would be, if you yourself have had a first-degree relative – a parent, sibling, child – who’s had an unexplained death, it’s extremely recommended you see a cardiologist,” she said.

“Anyone else, (see a cardiologist) if you have cardiac symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, or you can’t keep up with friends exercising or walking.”

          100% correct! Highly qualified doctors/researchers warned this would happen but of course were censored and silenced. It’s only just begun… They can never admit to this after assuring the masses it was safe and effective

        Seriously? Sudden Death Syndrome? Whoever heard of such nonsense before the killer jabs were unleashed on the world?
        But hey, “trust the science” now, right… the same science which accessorised the crime will now be used to conceal it.

        Very true….Americans have been brainwashed by slow & repetitive drumbeat of LIES by most media & various Gov. agencies…..Even so, the word EXPERIMENTAL ‘vaccine’ (& knowledge the Gov. changed the age old definition of the word) one would think would be cause to ?, pause & investigate. So many naive adults are being led blindly into an abyss….yet they have brains to think & eyes to see…..if they use them. So incredibly sad as they now allowing their children to be injected as well.

      The most obvious change in most of the population is that people have taken a product that has been poorly tested and has zero safety data from a company that wanted the knowledge of this to be hidden for 75 years. Get with it. Stop the poor journalism and have the courage to talk about what’s right under all of our noses.

      We warned you. You didn’t listen. You all just rolled up your sleeves and accepted an untested, unsafe medical procedure without questioning it at all. If you had, if you’d done even the most basic research you would have understood the danger you were in. The worst thing is you didn’t even do the research for your kids and you just offered them up to be experimented on.

      I have mourned all of you already because trying to get you to understand the danger you are in has been exhausting and has only lost me friends and alienated family. I can’t save you. None of us, who tried desperately to wake you up for months on end because we love you and don’t want to see you harmed, can save you. You are all so determined to sleepwalk into your own murder and leave the rest of us to deal with the tyranny you refused to see. Even though it was right in front of your goddamn faces.

      “I wonder why so many young people are suddenly dying?”. Is that even a serious question at this point.

      We know exactly what is causing SADS. It’s no mystery to those of us who were paying attention and who remembered the crimes of history.

      Maybe you should have listened to us.

      • HarveyMushman

        09 June 2022 • 20:40

        You articulated the situation and the frustration many of us feel very well. The strangest excuse for getting vaccinated that I have heard over and over is “I/we did it so we could travel”. They rolled the dice with a medical experiment just so they could travel one year sooner…. idiotic…

        Funny thing is that the only people who stand by those who suffers from the jab are the ones who didn’t take it.
        The rest of the altruistic and amazing people, the ones who said “it’s for your health too!” etc etc are completely disappeared.
        Maybe we’re the only humans left with empathy for others.

        • Mark

          09 December 2022 • 16:03

          The altruistic, amazing people who care about everyone are the same people they’ve always been: Narcissists trying to gain attention points and self-righteous points with the least amount of effort and thinking. It’s a sad fact that the correlation between doctors and narcissistic god-complexes is so overwhelming. Look up the history of the beginning of Nazism in Germany. The very first group to declare the Nazi plans to deal with the Jews were the DOCTORS. Don’t take my word for it, it’s a fact. It’s always like that in history (and even in the dystopian novels) for that reason. This time was not any different.

        You’re not alone.

        I warned everyone before Pfizer’s release, argued to closed minded people, provided correlated statistical evidence, spent nearly every day researching, thoroughly studied past vaccine development, studied viral evolution, and so much more. I begged some of my family not to take the shot, which mostly fell on deaf ears. Lost all the Liberal friends I had. Lost some of my Conservative friends. Most of my family disowned me. I guess we were selling “Crazy” and nobody was buying. It was crazy, but true nonetheless. I’d do the same, to at least know I tried. I get it, and understand. Most people were stuck in the rational old world & have not, or cannot embrace the irrational new. Most naively trust authority figures. They should have been healthy skeptics, and especially so of Government, always.

        Our types experienced the Cassandra Complex:
        “Cassandra was a daughter of Priam, the King of Troy. Struck by her beauty, Apollo provided her with the gift of prophecy, but when Cassandra refused Apollo’s romantic advances, he placed a curse ensuring that nobody would believe her warnings. Cassandra was left with the knowledge of future events, but could neither alter these events nor convince others of the validity of her predictions.”

        it’s apparent that few practice Critical Thinking at all these days, which is no simple of perfect thing.

        A well cultivated critical thinker:

        raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;
        gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;
        ***thinks openmindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing, as need be, their assumptions, implications, and practical consequences; and
        communicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

        Critical thinking is, in short, self-directed, self-disciplined, self-monitored, and self-corrective thinking. It presupposes assent to rigorous standards of excellence and mindful command of their use. It entails effective communication and problem solving abilities and a commitment to overcome our native ***egocentrism and sociocentrism.

        “The wise know too well their weakness to assume infallibility; and he who knows most knows best how little he knows.” -Thomas Jefferson

          Lyrics form Sabina Hossenfender’s ‘Cassandra’ official music video.

          Look I didn’t come to preach
          I have a life to live
          I got rent to pay
          And I have kids to feed
          I do not ride by the light of the moon on a broom
          To deliver the news of your impending doom
          It doen’t work like that
          cut the crap
          I’m a prophet – not a witch
          different act.
          I specialize in Omen and Prophecy
          And I have a degree in Catastrophe.
          But I can recommend an Optimist
          to tell you what you want when you ask for it.
          Stay with me
          face the risk
          I say the truth.
          Can yoe handle it?

      I see many people around me falling ill without any definite diagnosis. They are continuously ill, though the doctor says nothing is wrong. Turbo cancers suddenly pop up, mostly breast cancer. Lots of people with heart problems too. All vaxxed three times or more, that’s the only common factor.

      To me Euro weekly should have asked the questions 1. What was common between all of them, which is likely obvious to most here; 2 . They do not say if SADS is actually happening at a higher rate than normal. If it is occurring at the same rate pre-jab, in the same demographics then perhaps it is not COVID-jab related but related to something else.

      It’s so sad to see this happening. My brother and I had a conversation tonight about how we had done all we could to warn people of the 💉but they wouldn’t listen. It’s heartbreaking. We protested, posted on social media and talked about it non- stop. People wouldn’t hear it. The people in power will not get away with it. God will judge their crimes against humanity. I hope that people will start to wake up and won’t take the third jab.

      For real? These doctors are baffled? What kind of doctor are they? Doctor morons? The German Dr Andreas Noack found out months ago what caused this “sudden and unexpected” death: it was the graphene oxide contained in various batches. This cannot be found in the usual autopsies unless one searches for it explicitly.

      Just reiterating the above….they have SADS…coincidentally they were all vaccinated.
      People should read the book by Robert F Kennedy Junior (relative to President Kennedy so he might know a few things about corruption in high places…”The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma and the global war on democracy and public health”
      Covid was a plan…period. The “conspiracy theorists” were just the ones who saw it all coming…there is no theory about it any more.
      It’s interesting too that all the life insurance companies are now realising the vaccinated are at much higher risk of death and that the all causes mortality rate has skyrocketed…according to the biggest company in America, One America, it has increased by 40%….which is apparently simply unheard of no unprecedented.

      Dr Robert Malone who pretty much invented the MRNA vaccine technology with several pate to to prove it has been silenced telli people they should not get the shot.
      Dr Peter McCullough, the most published cardiologist in history saying the same and they co-signed The Rome Declaration, a petition of thousands of doctors trying to get this vaccine stopped.
      Dozens of other world leading doctors and scientists banging the same drum while mainstream and social media try to censor them…it’s pathetic and disgusting.
      This will be another lesson from history.

      Now I find myself full of resentment toward the very people I once tried to save, is anyone else feeling the same or have you felt that and how did you overcome it. I don’t like this anger and hatred in my heart ,it’s not a good thing and it feels terrible.

      The problem the doctors have, (the few who want to be honest about the jab), is that they will lose
      their licensing and thus status as a doctor if they tell the truth. The powers that be have made dissent a losing proposition for doctors.

      It is the wise one that sees the calamity coming afar off, but only the fool must pay the price. sadly those of us that tried to warn were ridiculed as moronic anti-vaxers, now as the dust begins to settle we see the damage and agenda of Covid 19 and its vaccines, for me though MSM are most reprehensible in all this, they drove the fear narrative, I will never forgive them for that.
